Immigrants to Canada 1930-1950

A new website, a private commercial initiative, is now online with names contained in Orders in Council of the Privy Council of Canada for the years between 1930 and 1950. The names are in free browse lists which show names of immigrants approved to come to Canada as well as the people in Canada sponsoring them.
Those of British or Irish origin were exempt from the regulations requiring notice in the Orders in Council. I found a man who was an Emeritus Professor at a university I attended. There's a contact address to purchase additional information about the immigrant:

Family name and first name
Age
Citizenship
Ethnic or religious identification
Address
Intended occupation in Canada

Normally also show is the following information about the sponsor of the immigrant:

First name and family name
City in Canada where they are living
Relationship to the immigrant
If they are Naturalized and when that occurred
How long they have been in Canada
Their occupation and financial situation

Find the site at www.orderincouncillists.com/

Thanks to Glenn Wright for the tip.
